a little spoiled...

Because Scott is busy with grad school and work, and because I am a wee bit busy with my part-time job, crafting, and trying to keep two energetic little kiddos alive and happy...it was decided that we needed a break from reality. (And it was our anniversary!!)

Randy and April (my brother and sister in law) offered to take Jack and Bianca for a couple days. When we dropped off the kids, I told April that when we left her house I was going to forget about my children, and not to call unless there was an emergency...like someone died.

we headed up to Seattle where scotty booked us a room at a swanky, upscale hotel with valet parking (you can imagine the shock of the host to see a bright green ford focus sputter up to the front of the hotel...it's a good thing scott picked up the goldfish crackers, sippy cups, and half eaten cinnamon toasts before we left or we might have been REALLY embarrassed.)

When we arrived, the girl at the front desk said "I am so sorry, but your room isn't ready, we are doing some maintenance on the fireplace...we apologize, and have upgraded you to the executive suite." I actually laughed out loud, and said "REALLY? I swear that only ever happens in the movies!!" She giggled and sent us on our way.

The room was about three times bigger than our apartment and completely beautiful. I never wanted to leave. Ever. (sorry about the pic quality...we only had cell phones)



Um, that tree, totally real. Talk about fancy!


King size bed, down comforter, feather pillows...ahhh.

We went up to Seattle with no plans at all. We just wanted to relax, reconnect, and absorb the peace and quiet! We ate at a lovely seafood restaurant with romantic ambiance, and then walked to the famous Pike Place Market that was just a few blocks from our hotel.

there were thousands of bouquets of flowers all for 10 bucks...if I didn't want to hold them on the hour car ride home I would have bought these ones...


It was so nice to just saunter through shops, holding hands and stealing kisses at every corner. It felt like we were dating again...It was a perfect 24 hours, and was over WAY too quickly.
Thanks Scotty for being the best husband, friend, and dad that a girl could ask for...and for putting together our weekend of bliss!!
I love you!

So I have to admit I am totally jealous. So true, you have a sweet and romantic husband. I am happy that you got to have a night without the kids.

Fancy schmancy! I love when they mess up rooms and upgrade. It happened to me once. It was awesome. So glad you got some much needed time away from it all.
